Angry Robot

Angry Robot is a new imprint launched in 2009 and dedicated -- as their website puts it -- to publishing "the best in brand new genre fiction – SF, F and WTF?!" Run by Marc Gascoigne and Lee Harris, Angry Robot passionately publishes not only physical paperbacks, but also limited-run special editions, print-on-demands, eBooks, and downloadable audios.

We've just received a few of their new paperbacks today and I concur that they certainly seem avant-garde, even wtf. These "angry robots" include Moxyland by Lauren Beukes (a high-tech, near-future, corporate-overlords, teenage-anger, disutopian fable), Kell's Legend by Andy Remic (the mega-violent, ultra-brutal, scifi-mashed fantasy book 1 of the clockwork vampire [!] chronicles), Slights by Karron Warren (the chilling story of a serial killer struggling to understand her own horrifying NDE through the deaths of her victims), and Sixty-one Nails by Mike Shevdon (an urban-fantasy of secret histories, ancient rituals, and hidden wars).

But more then publishing bleeding-edge Sf/F, Angry Robot is building a robot army. Enlistment in this army is open to humans as well and means blogging about their authors, reviewing their books, passing on their world-domination hypno-encryptions. In return Angry Robots offers free books, interviews, insider news, and vaccinations against robot-transmitted nanoviruses.
